We stayed in a castaway (top of range) beach front cabin/villa. We loved it, right on the beach, great daybed overlooking ocean.... just what we wanted
Food ok but could do better .... not as good as the Amanjirah resort that we had just spent 7 days at and Haad Tien is 3 times the price hence should lift quality to match resort price. The worst pizza I've ever eaten .... I didnt complain as its Thailand and all the cooks were Thai, so not their fault and probably a stupid thing to order on my part!
The beach cocktail barman was great... fun friendly and excellent cocktail skills. So were most of the staff especially the adoreable porters who were fantastic and so keen to please and go out of their way to help. In fact all the Thai staff were great. Was a bit perplexed by the very serious female German? who I think was the manager ..... clearly she is not naturally cut out for the hospitality industry as was a bit like a german prison warden/old school mistress who did'nt look happy at all.... she was not outwardly rude when she gave us a tour of our room but just odd, robotic and not the thai smiley welcome that Thailand is famous for! Anyway we named her Hilda Von Trap and got some amusement out of it and just avoided here wherever possible. Sounds mean but first impressions last and this is a very expensive resort by Koh Tao standards.
Pool was aaamaaazing .... loved it! Beach was also great ..... had to wade out to snorkel as is low tide season, but was very pretty beach and kept spotlessly clean. Only down side was the bit of construction work that was going on but to be honest after a few excellent strawberry daquiries we didnt really notice!
Yes would def reccomend and probably return as is a beautiful natural resort that is trying hard to keep with nature.
